9 Terrible Movies That Roger Ebert Loved

Junior (1994)

Granted, there aren’t many movies where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets pregnant. Nevertheless, Junior finds a way to take an extremely ludicrous premise and turn it into something that’s… well, weirdly serious. Not in a good way, either. While I’ve, admittedly, got a bit of a soft spot for it, Junior didn’t reach its potential. Despite Schwarzenegger’s commitment, along with another fun turn from Danny DeVito as his maternal doctor, Junior is, frankly, oddly dull. You would think such a ridiculous premise would produce bountiful results, especially from director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters ’84, Animal House). Nevertheless, Junior is a missed opportunity, and an uninspired body comedy that doesn’t produce as belly laughs as it should.
